Cassey, thanks so much for everything you do. I did ballet most of my life and stopped after college…after just doing 2 hours of your videos for the first time..I can honestly say I feel the same sweat and tears, if not more…I want to workout all day with you XD …
I’m doing the workout for beginners and I love it!
It’s nice way for good shape. You made great job!
Thank you for your videos.

Hi! I want to start doing your videos, and I just want to know how often a week I should do them to see results? Or do I have to do some other videos than the beginner ones to get wanted results?
They all look really great, and I am really hoping to get a flatter tummy and more toned legs etc :)
I just did your POP Pilates Summer Slimdown Videos and realized that I have to start with some beginner videos… :-/ But i have a problem finding them. When I open this side it says connection time out..and I can’t find it on youtube either. Could you be so nice and post a link to the beginner videos?? I need to get in shape for the summer figure and I’d love to do it with your videos!! I really love your energy!!
So please help me ;-)
Greetings from Berlin, Germany
Sorry, now, as I posted it I can see your videos!! :)
Hi, i love the workout!
I’m doing the workout for beginners and I don’t know if my breathing is correct, I’m a singer so I automatically do the abdominal breahing. Do you have any video just for breathin practice? This is my first time with pilates workouts and I want to get in shape .. I’m doing the 20 minutes workout everyday ..is that ok?
Than you for your videos and stay awsome!!

When I do the for beginner’s workout, my hips get so tight when doing the circles that I can’t seem to stretch them out. This especially happens when you are saying I should feel it in my butt, which I don’t. Any suggestions?
I am 58 years old and I have started with your beginners videos and although I have not exercised in quite a while I am really not feeling the pain I think I should be the next day. Am I doing something wrong?
I would love some videos for beginners that target the upper legs. I’m beginning to see “lunch ladies” form in the inner upper thigh area that need to go…YUCK!
Wait, what are lunch ladies!?!?
Hey Cassey! I love your videos. How should we know when we are ready to move on from the beginners pilates moves? Is there a way to know? :P Thanks for everything you do!!!!
How often would you recommend doing this, daily or thrice a week or weekly? And do you have any tea preferences? haha (:
I liked the Caplet! It’s so pretty, never seen ahntying like it before :)I feel extra beautiful after a post-workout bath- especially if I’m having to dress up and head out with friends/family! The sense of accomplishment after completing an exercise, the natural blush on my cheeks, and the gratefulness for the love shown by my friends and family.. it gives me a sense of belonging, and I will be feeling beautiful no matter how the world defines beauty :)
Hi Cassey ! :)
I’ve recently started your videos – actually on Sunday , but even though I know I’m a fool to expect results in three days , but I do feel stronger. I used to be fit , but I let my self- go so its hard to gain all that muscle back yet easy to push myself ; I want to lose 20 lbs for prom in JUNE! I’ve told myself constantly to lose weight all year , but now I feel like I’m actually trying with POP Pilates I’m able to go up and down the stairs without heavy breathing nor tiredness. I’ll let you know if I fit into my dream dress :)
Thanks so much for these videos, they’re just what i’m after. I tried moving on to the advanced ones and they’re still a bit tricky for me. Are you going to do some more beginners vids?
Thank you so much for these videos! I did the one for the back and I thought. “Oh this is so easy.” But then I was SO sore the next day! I just did the abs for beginners and am soaked in sweat! I guess I’m way more outta shape than I thought. Keep up the good work!
I love all your workouts Cassey! …
But I still come back and do this beginners’ one on days when I am sore :P
Thank you soooooo much for this video!
I just finished it for the first time and enjoyed it thoroughly.
I must admit, though, the legs exercises totally did me in! (although I was ok for the abs or arms).
Thank you for doing such a awesome job. I would like to ask you a question. I would like to start with pilates to loose some weight but I need to watch my blood pressure (it’s not dangerous, I just need to start very slowly), especially I wasn’t doing so much sport or anything before.
Do you have any tipps for me? Thank you very much.
You doing an excellent job!
I need to ask you, I don’t want to lose my weight, I am very skinny, I need to increase muscle mass, but I don’t want fat..Are these exercises good for me? Thanks dear!
i just started doing your workouts today. I can’t wait to see results!
OMG, Just did this for the first time, it was sooooo hard! lol I thought I was pretty strong, but I guess not, definitely gonna start doing this everyday!
I was wondering how long should I do the beginners workouts before I move up to the other ones??
Just until you want to try the others! If you can’t finish, just take a break!
I swear I can’t suck my belly button in when I’m in Pilates position, I try to suck it in all during the day though.. It’s so weird. do you think I’m just not strong enough yet?
Hi cassey I’m really overweight and I’m 13 I really think my mom dose not even care I just started doing this today and I really feel it working lol but I love this and I’ll keep doing it in till I start seeing results u really inspire me <3
i’m new here and i just started pop pilates for beginners! You make look that so easy!! but it’s not ;)
I ‘ll do that again tomorrow and the day after! i think it will be easier in a few weeks!
thanks for your wonderful blog and videos!
Does pilates built the kind of muscle that will be significant to burn fat and boost metabolism? I have been trying to lose some stubborn body fat and have hit a plateau. Thanks! :)
You make exercise interesting and worth wild!
love the vids! When I do 100s I use my abs to pull me up as far as I can, not my neck, but I still always feel like I can’t breathe because my lung space is restricted. Normal?
You just gotta practice breathing laterally. Deep breaths to the sides of your rib cage.
Hey Cassey, love the workout! With the oblique dippers, I dont seem to engage my obliques at all, just my wrist and shoulder. what should I do? Thank you for all your videos and posts – I adore them!
check to see that your wrist and knees or toes are in line in parallel with the edge of the mat!
Hey Cassie, I’ve been trying to commit myself to work out more regularly and get in shape. I’ve started going to the gym for some cardio and a little bit of weight training as well. And I was wondering if it’s alright to do both pilates and gym workouts on the same day (will it be too much exercising for someone who’s not used to regular exercising?) Also, I was wondering, because I’ve never done pilates before, if I should start with these beginner videos before any other ones?
Finally, I wanted to say thank you so much for making such encouraging website and videos.
yes start with the beginner vids!
I’ve been doing these about 3 times a week for a fornight now, and my god! The difference to my upper body strength is amazing. My posture seems to be getting better too. :)
I really enjoy your video “pilates gor beginners”!
I was wonderring which video to do after that…
…I mean which one is suitable for a not beginner but not yet advanced!
I have done your total body pilates work out (abs, leg and arms) and I hurt everywhere! IT’S AWESOME! Thanks so much for posting all your routines. I can’t quite make it through just yet without looking ridiculous but I plan on working at it til I can!
I’m really just a beginner in Pilates and damn girl, you made my legs hurt ;) But I loved it and I will keep doing it four times a week because I feel better al ready. Thanks for this and keep doing what you do. You have changed my life :)
Greeting frot Belgium
Glad to have u on board!
Hi Cassey, i was wondering can u make some butt and thights targeted videos for beginners?
I just found your website after recommendations from friends, and I just finished this workout. Whew! Way to show me how out of shape I really am! I loved it though–I know I’ll be sore tomorrow, but I can tell that I worked on muscles that really need to be strengthened.
Thank you so much for your awesome website!
ive just watched your beginner video and got through okay but im really unfit i was just wondering how long i should do the beginners vid before moving on to next step ???
I loved the beginner video! I could do it all the way through without stopping, thanks so much for providing this type of video, it was awesome!
I have been exploring for a little bit for any high-quality articles or weblog posts in this sort of area . Exploring in Yahoo I eventually stumbled upon this web site. Studying this information So i am satisfied to show that I’ve a very excellent uncanny feeling I came upon exactly what I needed. I most indisputably will make certain to do not overlook this site and provides it a look regularly.
Please stay!!! You will find everything you need, I promise.
Hey, I’ve just discovered your videos after recommendations from friends. I’m 18 years old and quite fit, but I have a very weak core so your videos are amazing (but tough!)
When I go into pilates stance my head feels like it weighs a heap though! Even though my abs are killing me, my neck is also killing me. Any idea what I’m doing wrong??
Thanks so much, your videos are fantastic! Love from New Zealand!!
it takes time to adjust. just do the best u can to use ur abs to lift, not ur neck. ur neck muscle will strengthen over time. rest ur head if and when it gets too heavy.
it’s true…i started working out about two weeks ago and my neck was killing me, I couldnt sleep at night.But after few days it stoped and i wasnt doing anything diffrent :)
Hello from Australia. I’ve just recently discovered your blog (where have I been?) and just done your beginners pilates video. I think it killed me and I consider myself a fit person.
Just wanted to say thanks for making these. I’ll definitely be adding these to my weekly routines.
Thanks again :D
you are welcome!
I just wrote a post on my blog about this workout! Thanks for your great videos Cassey :)
Check it out here:
I came across your site in my searching for ways of getting more fit during my team’s roller derby off-season time. I’ve even recommended your site to my team mates. :) I’m a rank beginner with this concept of pilates.
One issue I’m having is in some of your videos there seems to be some background music that I find a bit distracting. It makes it slightly difficult to follow along when I’m playing your video on my desktop computer and I’m down on the floor.
Oh, and I second the request for more beginner videos, please! *heart*
Ah yes, please subscribe to youtube.com/blogilatestv – those workouts don’t have music! OK, and will keep more beg. vids in mind :)
I just wanted to say thank you for all your wonderful videos and also for the 90 Day Challenge, I really love them!
I do have a hard time with most of your videos though and I was wondering if there will be more beginner videos? I can’t get enough of those! :D
Yea I should make more!
Hello from Australia!!
I’m new to pilates and have really loved your blog so far – it’s great for my pre-wedding work outs! But no matter what, I can’t do that thing how you peel yourself off the ground like a sticker! Have you got any tips for me so I can slowly get better? Thanks!
Hold onto your legs! And pull yourself up!
Hi Cassey, thanks for your blog, it’s great.
Is there any way to download your videos (itunes, etc). Thank you so much.
no not yet!
if you have the youtube app on your iPhone/iDevice you can watch her videos that way!
That’s what I do! haha
Hallo Cassey, ich finde deine Workouts super! Viele Grüße aus Deutschland
when i sow this video for 1 time i thouth that it is very easy…today i tried and is not so easy but i am happy becouse i feel that my mouscules are working and this make me happy…thank you very much for your videos
I really like this workout but everytime i move my legs my hips and knees crack and it hurts. Is there anyway i can still workout without the pain?
Try to keep your knees bent and press your lower back into the mat.
Hey, Cassey. Thanks so much for your videos. I am from Brazil and I am trying to get back into shape with you. I had a baby three years ago, need desperately to like my body again. Since I never seem to be able to go to a gym, detached from my role as a mother, your videos came up as the most perfect solution. Certainly my little Julia gets in the way, but it has been very good! I hope I can write back to tell you about my progress!!!
hey cassey ,
I just started woking out and I just can’t keep up with you am I being lazy or it takes time to be able to do all the those work outs
Don’t worry it will come to you quicker thant you think. I started up with this video like 2 months ago and now the first thing in the morning is thinking of doing my Cassey Ho’s pilates. And I was the laziest girl in the world !
